Artist of the moment…….Phyllis Plattner

 

 

Phyllis Plattner is wonderful artist renowned for her still life paintings. Phyllis Plattner was born in 1940 and grew up in New York City. For her artistic education Plattner attended the New York City High School of Music and Art. Plattner went on to college earning a bachelors degree from Bennington College located in Bennington, Vermont.

Plattner earned a M.F.A. from Claremont Graduate Schoo.

Plattner counts Bonnard, the wonderful painter of female nudes and floral scenes as a major influence.

Plattner works in many mediums including acrylics, oils, printmaking, and watercolor.

What I enjoy most about Plattner’s work is the fact she paints looking down at objects rather than the traditional boring still life. Plattner is great at using a mixture of shapes on her canvas and does a wonderful job and finding many different textures in her paintings to keep the interest of the viewer.

Price range information: Sorry none available.

Another artist who paints many works looking down is the Dutch artist Kenne Gregoire, profiled here already.
